So my firewall is also hosting an SQL server ( I know not best practice but i dont have much choice (money expense))

its only for internal use so not much of a threat

but anyway, ive created my rule to match denies i saw in the firewall logging

now the rule allows initates then its deneid due to a non sync packet
ive read this might be to do with default gateways

im connecting of a VPN managed by our cisco routers (trying setting up SQL Replication)

ive created a routgin topolgy in TMG from one network to the other
the network connectivity is fine, im rdping to the machine now from over the VPN so i didnt think it could be a network issue

anyway if anyone has any ideas?
